Eddie Izzard’s Believe Me tour reveals the man behind the stand-up. The show is funny and emotional, with all of the fascination with the ridiculous that fans expect from an Eddie Izzard performance. Izzard’s first book, Believe Me, was just chosen by Bill Gates as one of the “5 Amazing Books I Read This Year.”
Writing with the same candor and insight evident in his comedy, he reflects on a childhood marked by the loss of his mother, attending boarding school, and alternative sexuality, as well as a life in comedy, film, politics, running, and philanthropy. Honest and generous, Izzard’s Believe Me is an inspired account of a very singular life thus far.
